    Gavin Sequeira interviews Steven English - Process Engineer Turned Speaker, Executive Coach And Trainer

    Gavin Sequeira interviews Steven English - Process Engineer Turned Speaker, Executive Coach And Trainer

    In this podcast, Steven shares his journey out of engineering, a field he has studied and worked so hard to excel at, and where he had moved up as far as he could on the corporate ladder.  In one of his last jobs at Samsung, he experienced his darkest hours where his health took a toll fuelled with alcohol consumption. It was also during this time that he was involved in training and development where he experienced the joy of helping others to reach their potential and he explored options of learning and growing from experts he came across on a regular basis, working out how he could create an effective presentation skills class. This was a passion he would seek out to fulfill.
    Steven made the tough call letting his employer know that outside of his professional hours in the company, he would dedicate his time to teaching presentation skills classes and concentrate on his coaching. He took the time to plan his move with careful consideration. Steven is an advocate for getting to your truth as quickly as you can and start small and make a start at a time when you don't need the money, so that you are free to experiment and try things without the attachment of the outcome. He is also a believer that we all have the opportunity to be transitional characters and break the mould of whatever we find ourselves stuck in. From Toastmasters to TedX and everything in between, Steven continues to share his message and you can connect with him on LinkedIn or through his website: www.stevenenglish.net

    Gavin Sequeira interviews Daniel Phung - Dentist Turned Marketing and PR Agency Owner

    Gavin Sequeira interviews Daniel Phung - Dentist Turned Marketing and PR Agency Owner

    In this podcast, Daniel shares the journey of how his parents came to Australia during the Vietnam war as refugees with absolutely no money and no possessions. In his words, they were so poor that they would run out of food. Daniel believed that to be successful in life you had to be born into wealth and therefore he had no dreams. Using Tom Cruise as one of his idols who overcame poverty, he decided to turn his life around. By studying hard and working as a dentist he became successful but realized he could only help so many people in the day. This was also a time when he discovered the power of marketing and messaging to reach people in a unique way that spoke to their wants and needs.
    Fast forward to today, Daniel runs his own marketing agency 'Full Books Marketing' which helps personalities and brands scale their businesses and outreach through PR (Forbes, Vogue, Entrepreneur, Yahoo), social media verification, and business consulting through the use of innovative (and sometimes controversial) marketing methods. Daniel also runs his own podcast 'From Poverty To Success' and shares a lot of the wisdom and tips he has learned through his business and from various mentors that he passes on to the public. You can reach out to Daniel who is happy to provide a complimentary consultation to help you grow your business, by visiting: www.calendly.com/fullbooks/breakfree

    Gavin Sequeira interviews King Raj Singh - IT/Computer Technician Turned Real Estate Investor, Lead Singer And Passive Income Artiste

    In this podcast, Raj shares how he was able to shift his mindset by following successful people, which led him out of his corporate job as an IT/Computer Consultant towards becoming a successful Real Estate Investor that saw him featured on late night TV. This enabled him to quit his full time job. However, when the housing market crashed, he had the challenge of having to rebuild from scratch and learnt an important lesson of not pouting all his eggs in one basket. This got Raj exploring into many vehicles where he could leverage passive income such as ATM machines, Forex investing, Amazon automated stores. Once again, he credits his knowledge from mentors and people he looked up to that had the success he was wanting to emulate.. and associated with the likes of Bob Proctor, Jordan Belfort, Dr. John Demartini, Tai Lopez and others.
    Raj shared his personal life journey in a TEDx talk to inspire people into taking action to change their mindset and their lives and he loves teaching people a systematic way of doing this to develop passive income and therefore more freedom in their lives. Raj is the Founder & CEO of Financial Freedom Mastery Academy, which provides people with an in depth insight into his proven, successful ‘5M Money Personality System’. Raj loves creating freedom to be able to ‘play’ more with like-minded people and encourages us all to do this. Visit: www.kingrajgift.com to connect with Raj and get access to a special gift he’s prepared for our audience, i.e. the ‘Money Personality Assessment’ complimentary, and I know that this will be a massive help no matter where you’re at.

    Gavin Sequeira interviews Ray Homsany - School Teacher Turned Entrepreneur And Online Educator And Facilitator

    Gavin Sequeira interviews Ray Homsany - School Teacher Turned Entrepreneur And Online Educator And Facilitator

    In this podcast, Ray Homsany shares his journey from being a teacher who loved what he did, to finding himself stuck in the red tape and administrative bureaucracy within the education industry. Ray loves teaching Maths, English and Science to his students, however was finding that because of the breakages in the system, he was not able to offer the quality time to his students and started to notice skill gaps emerging across the board. He needed to find a better way to do things and this led him towards face to face tutoring. The only issue was once again he was investing a lot of spare time doing this and he wanted more out of life and needed a smarter way of doing things. Ray was looking at how he could work independently from home, not have to travel as much, have an additional source of income and leverage his time so that he could travel and still keep working with his clients.
    Ray approached us with his dilemma and we began working closely to help him establish his own brand ‘Opera Estate Tuition’ so that he could have more freedom and flexibility in his life. Ray wanted to have more control over where he worked, who he worked with and have the ability to shape how the business operates without all the red tape he used to experience in the traditional school system. Ray talks about the importance of getting the right mindset in place and also having someone to guide you for moral support, which were key components that led to his success. Ray’s online teaching program is a big success in the community and was really useful during the Covid-19 pandemic times, when schools were shut and parents needed an alternative way to educate their kids. Ray made a big move interstate recently and whilst this was a logistical challenge, his business continued to grow uninterrupted because it was setup for success. Visit: www.facebook.com/englishtuitiononline to get in touch with Ray and find out more about his online tuition program.

Dave the Radio Guy ,

Two Brains On The Same Success Wavelength Making A Difference

As a really old veteran international podcaster named Dave, I commend Gavin Sequeira for his seasoned skills as a podcast host. It was a real treat to be featured on his show. His expert style of engaging me and the audience with thought provoking questions really made me feel connected and comfortable. With our common message of changing family’s lives for the better across North America and the world, it gives me great joy to reignite and resurrect those unfulfilled dreams and hopes you may have thought were long since buried. Is that a little too flowery? Look, my mission is to encourage you to discover your positive passion and purpose. I recommend you listen to this episode more than once. Let this message marinate for awhile in the space between your ears. You’ve got two guys who care about you and want the best for you. Go for it.
